Psalm 113 The Passion Translation (TPT)

God Is Kind

113 Hallelujah! Praise the Lord![a]
Go ahead, praise the Lord, all you loving servants of God!
Keep it up! Praise him some more!
For the glorious name of the Lord is blessed forever and ever.
From sunrise brilliance to sunset beauty,
lift up his praise from dawn to dusk!
For he rules on high over the nations
with a glory that outshines even the heavens.
No one can be compared to God, enthroned on high!
He stoops down to look upon the sky and the earth.
He promotes the poor, picking them up from the dirt,
and rescues the needy from the garbage dump.
He turns paupers into princes and seats them
on their royal thrones of honor.
God’s grace provides for the barren ones a joyful home with children
so that even childless couples find a family.
He makes them happy parents surrounded by their pride and joy.
That’s the God we praise, so give it all to him!


  1. Psalm 113:1 Ps. 113–114 were sung before the meal, during the Jewish family’s celebration of Passover, while Ps. 115–118 were sung after the meal (see Mark 14:26).

Psalm 113 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 113

Praise the Lord.[a]

Praise the Lord, you his servants;
    praise the name of the Lord.
Let the name of the Lord be praised,
    both now and forevermore.
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets,
    the name of the Lord is to be praised.

The Lord is exalted over all the nations,
    his glory above the heavens.
Who is like the Lord our God,
    the One who sits enthroned on high,
who stoops down to look
    on the heavens and the earth?

He raises the poor from the dust
    and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
he seats them with princes,
    with the princes of his people.
He settles the childless woman in her home
    as a happy mother of children.

Praise the Lord.


  1. Psalm 113:1 Hebrew Hallelu Yah; also in verse 9
